    Redsox To Place Eduardo Rodriguez on 10 DL for Knee Injury

    Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports that Eduardo Rodriguez will be placed on the disabled list with a knee injury.
    Rodriguez slipped and tweaked his knee during warm-ups prior to Thursday's start. He pitched through it but didn't look like himself, giving up four home runs and seven runs on the night. It's unclear how much time he might miss. Brian Johnson is an obvious candidate to take Rodriguez's rotation spot

    Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez is going on the disabled list after sustaining a knee injury in a slip in the bullpen Thursday night, according to a baseball source.

    Rodriguez pitched poorly (seven runs, four home runs, in 5-2/3 innings), his worst start of the season, but denied afterwards that he had hurt himself in the tumble during pregame warm-ups.

    "No," he said after his start as to whether or not he was pitching hurt. He described his fall in vague terms: "I don't know if I can tell you. I just threw a pitch and my foot got in a bad position and I went down. But nothing crazy. I just landed a bit different, and that's it."

    According to the source, the injury did not affect Rodriguez enough physically for him to say he could not pitch, and after the game he did not want to use the incident as an excuse for his outing.

    I like that he tried to pitch thru it. I only blame JF if ERod told him and He told him to try to pitch thru it. Then that's not right
    @LouMerloni


    Chtistian Vazquez says he could tell was off with ERod as game went on last night, starting with dip in velocity

    Welp, let's see what Johnson has. A 10-day stint is fine, but if this is one of those lingering things (whether mental or physical) and ERod isn't right for months... ****.

    Red Sox placed LHP Eduardo Rodriguez on the 10-day disabled list with a right knee subluxation.
    Rodriguez slipped and tweaked his knee during warm-ups prior to Thursday's start. He pitched through it but didn't look like himself, giving up four home runs and seven runs on the night. It's the same knee that caused him to get a late start to last season and also gave him issues during winter ball. The hope is that is'a short-term issue for Rodriguez, but more will be known when he gets a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews on Monday. Brian Johnson is likely to take Rodriguez's rotation spot, although the Red Sox don't need a fifth starter until June 10.

    Not good.

    Meh, Andrews is synonymous with elbows and TJ so his name doesn't scare me quite as much here. EdRo's long history with that right knee is already a problem, disrupting three straight seasons. Worst case, losing him for this season, would still be palatable if that injury never occurs again.

    Evan Drellich of CSN New England reports that Dr. James Andrews has recommended that Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) be shut down for 3-4 weeks.
    The hope is that Rodriguez's right knee would feel better after the shutdown period and he'd be able to avoid surgery, but a season-ending operation would be on the table if he doesn't recover as hoped. If he does eventually go under the knife, the recovery period would be 5-6 months. Even if he successfully rehabs, it looks like we won't see Rodriguez until at least late July at the earliest. Rodriguez is dealing with a right knee subluxation, which is a fancy way of saying he has a dislocated kneecap. It's something that's bothered him a few times off and on since last season. Brian Johnson is in line to fill Rodriguez's spot in the Red Sox' rotation, assuming his ailing hamstring is well enough

    ^^^ Different but related....


    Brian Johnson has a good chance at pitching for the Red Sox this weekend, after all.
    According to a team source, the pitcher’s hamstring is no longer giving him discomfort, with Johnson having tested the leg with a throwing session Sunday. The lefty had experienced what was classified as a cramp when falling down after delivering a pitch Saturday in Durham, N.C.

    Johnson was forced to leave his start after the second-inning incident, leaving his availability to replace Eduardo Rodriguez in the Red Sox’ rotation for the coming weekend in doubt.

    But after the improvement over the past 72 hours, and a few extra days of rest, Johnson still appears to be the favorite to make the start against Detroit at Fenway Park.

    "[Eduardo Rodriguez is] actually going through a lower-body lift right now, a lower-body workout," manager John Farrell said before Sunday night's game against the Tigers. "How we're approaching this post-injury is pretty much in five-day phases. It would be increased agility work, increased running. We still have to take him through some [pitchers' fielding practice], all those types of markers along the way. Optimistically, to get him on the mound in the next five days would be a really good sign."

    Boston Red Sox Transactions 2017

    I've decided to make a forum for Red Sox's transactions. This will include. Callups, Sent down, DL's.
    I don't want to clutter up IGT with transactions. Please remember to quote your sources.

    According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Red Sox explored a long-term deal with Mookie Betts this past winter.
    But talks apparently didn't get too far and Heyman writes Thursday that the 24-year-old outfielder has "decided he’s comfortable going year to year" for now. Betts is making just $950,000 this season despite finishing second in the 2016 American League MVP voting. He has a big payday coming in the off season as a first-time arbitration guy. Betts is scheduled to reach free agency after the 2020 campaign.

    Red Sox placed LHP Brian Johnson on the 10-day disabled list with a left shoulder impingement.
    Johnson suffered the injury in the third inning of his start Wednesday night against the Phillies. He was officially charged with three earned runs over 2 2/3 frames, raising his season ERA to 4.29. There is no current timetable for his return

    Rotoworld

    Red Sox transferred LHP Roenis Elias from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.
    Elias has been out all season due to lat and intercostal injuries. There is no clear timetable for his return to live action
    Rotoworld

    Tyler Thornburg will undergo season-ending surgery Friday for thoracic outlet syndrome.
    A very tough blow for the Red Sox, who traded Travis Shaw and three legitimate prospects to the Brewers over the winter in exchange for Thornburg. The 28-year-old setup man came down with shoulder problems early in spring training and has yet to appear in a game for Boston. He registered a 2.15 ERA and 90/25 K/BB ratio over 67 innings last season with Milwaukee.
    Pete Abraham

    Carson Smith (elbow) threw one inning in a simulated game on Thursday.
    He's headed back to Boston for a checkup and is hoping to get the green light to begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday. Smith's recovery from Tommy John surgery takes on greater importance now that Tyler Thornburg (thoracic outlet surgery) has been ruled out for the year. Barring a setback, Smith should be back around the All-Star break.
    Pete Abraham

    Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) completed a 33-pitch bullpen session on Thursday.
    Beat writer Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe said Rodriguez was "ecstatic" after his session. Rodriguez was expected to resume agility drills before throwing again but instead he did it the other way around. E-Rod will need at least one rehab start before he's ready to rejoin the starting rotation. The Red Sox could sure use him now that Brian Johnson (shoulder) is also on the shelf.
    Pete Abraham

    Hector Velazquez will replace Brian Johnson (shoulder) in the Red Sox's starting rotation.
    Johnson was just placed on the DL with a left shoulder impingement. With Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) still a few weeks away, Velazquez is the best the Red Sox have right now. He's lined up to start Monday's series opener in Kansas City.

    Carson Smith won't begin a rehab assignment Sunday as expected. He'll instead be shut down for four or five days with shoulder inflammation
    brianmacp

    I have a feeling he's not going to be pitching again. Hope he doesn't need another TJ. Hopefully it's nothing major.,

    Sounds like a compensation issue but I'm not reading anything other than what you posted. DD may have won on his big ticket trades but, man, has he gotten his clock cleaned on the next level (Smith, Thornburg, Pomeranz).

    Red Sox placed 3B Pablo Sandoval on the 10-day disabled list with an inner ear infection.
    It's the second trip to the disabled list this season for Sandoval, who has been mostly sitting in favor of Josh Rutledge of late. Sandoval is batting just .212/.269/.354 this season

    LOL, I bet the inner ear infection cleared up super fast when he got antibiotics. Nice diagnosis that cannot be confirmed by any other doc. This might be the best phantom injury of all time. They should have just called it "eye suck."

    Eduardo Rodriguez looks to be on the verge of coming back.

    Prior to his team taking on the Royals Monday night, Red Sox manager John Farrell said Rodriguez's right knee has progressed to the point where the Red Sox are planning on him facing hitters later this week. If all goes well, Rodriguez is slated to get a rehab start in the minor leagues.
    weei.com

    “Initiated some change of direction a little (yesterday),” Farrell said. “He ran some stadium (steps). The change of direction, a little bit of (pitcher’s fielding practice) with some light ground-ball work. He’ll throw another bullpen (today). The advancement of the change of direction and the added intensity of the running (is) kind of the final stage here. He’s set for the bullpen tomorrow. He’ll throw to some hitters live on Saturday, then probably toward the middle or latter part of next week, we’d like to get him in a game on a rehab assignment.”
